About Error Sounds Be Gone!

DO NOT USE CURSE CLIENT

Curse client will not work with this addon because this addon is placed in a different folder (outside of the addons directory).

What does it do?

It Gets rid of all those annoying pesky GCD (Global cooldown) error sounds (woosh, clicks, bangs, and fizzle) so you can enjoy the nice sound of battle instead!

Enjoy

!!!!!!! Install Guide READ ME FIRST !!!!!!!

Extract the \Sound folder into your <DIR>\World of Warcraft\

or the \Language Folder

Example

H:\World of Warcraft\Sound\

or \enUS\Sound

Is this addon legal?

Yes, it is, it does not modify any files outside of addon folder, Blizzard allows sound replacement, if they didn't, this addon wouldn't work like this.

Error sounds still gone 10/20/2013
-Default /sound/ directory moved out of /data/ and into /world of warcraft/
-Updated readme to reflect directory changes

    Just to confirm what others have already said,

    have been using this fix for years, after downloading the patch last night started hearing the anoying error sounds again. renaming them from .wav to .ogg fixed my issue.

     

    here is a link to my sounds in case anyone is having problems: http://www.zilfa.com/random/wow_sounds/Sound.zip

    also for referance, i am running Windows 7 64bit and the only codex's i have installed is CCCP (http://www.cccp-project.net/)

    hope it helps!

    Ok having a pain tonight. Finally found a coverter to change .wav to ogg still doesnt work. What am I missing? Do I need codex to play .ogg?  Anyone someone can post there files or advise?

    I had some issue with 4.3.3 as well. I tried to change the file extension, but it didnt work for me. Not sure if its a 64 bit Windows 7 thing or what.. But, I went and converted the .wav file to a .ogg file using a free web app and it worked. Thank God. Hope this helps someone who had the same issue as me. Good gaming All -)

    no need to use a converter, just change the file extensions from .wav to .ogg

    Same issue here, since 4.3.3 the fizzle sound and gcd error sounds are back.

    Here is how i fixed mine, changed the extensions of the fizzle files from .wave to .ogg

    Was anything changed in 4.3.3? I was using this yesterday and wasn't getting any error sounds, but now I'm getting the nwoosh sound after updating to patch 4.3.3. Sound files are still in the proper folders, seems the client is using a new error sound or something.

    im having the same problem with 4.3.3. error sounds are back.

    sorry. i have tried this numerous times, following all the old posts here. i don't think this works anymore. still getting that awful new 4.2 error sound when spamming or using macro. sigh.
  • #41
    I do not receive any new error, are you sure it is installed correctly?

    Works for me in Cata.. On MAC/OSX path was /Applications/World of Warcraft/Data/enUS

    I did notice one folder was Sound/interface instead of Sound/Interface (capital 'i') so I renamed it and it worked fine.

    Note that you must leave wow and re-enter it completely or the sound files won't be found, you can't do this alt-tabbed etc.

    Hi, I used this mod on WOTLK with a great succss (I loved it).
    But I just came back on Cata, and I cannot make it work.
    I put the files in the WOW\data\frFr\Sound directory, but when i launch wow, ugly sounds (woosh, toc...) are still here.
    Is there something new to do ?
    I deleted the cache, but it does not help either...
  • #37
    I love you. And your mod.
  • #36
    it took me a while to figure out how to make this work for some reason but i eventually did somehow. =) weird that it doesnt show up in the addons page. anyhoo it works awsome thx =)

    Downloaded addon but manual instructions dont work. I have windows vista,I dont see any of the unzip options directions talk about or wow files talked about.
